During the sixth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) nothing was working out for Virat Kohli. He had a forgettable day at the field and would be looking to make a strong comeback as quickly as possible. He dropped KXIP skipper, KL Rahul twice and the latter made sure that RCB pays for it as he was dropped he was playing at the scores of 83 and 89 and then he amassed 132 off just 69 balls.

KL Rahul batted all the 20 overs over of the innings and smashed 14 fours and seven sixes. After being dropped by Virat Kohli, Rahul smashed 42 runs from just 9 balls. In the 19th over, he smashed Dale Steyn for 26 runs before ending the innings by hitting Shivam Dube for four and two sixes on the final three balls.

Riding on Rahul’s knock, the Punjab-based franchise reached a humongous total of 206 for 3 in the allotted 20 overs. As if those twin drops were not enough, Virat Kohli failed with the bat as well. The RCB captain managed to score just 1 before being sent back by Sheldon Cottrell.

And as Virat Kohli was struggling on the field, he was being brutally trolled on Twitter for his two dropped catches and for his batting failure. During the chase, RCB came down to 5/3 in the first three overs itself as they lost the wickets of Devdutt Padikkal, Kohli, and Joshua Phillippe. However, they never managed to stay in the chase despite the AB de Villiers and Aaron Finch who was dismissed by M Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi respectively.
